Asian History Carnival Coming to the World History Blog

I will be hosting the next Asian History Carnival here at the World History Blog on July 7th. Nominate posts here or send them directly to “miland[at]usa2014[dot]com”.

Here is some information on the Asian History Carnival from Jonathan Dresner:

"When recommending postings for inclusion in the carnival you may submit your own work or suggest good posts by someone else. You may submit multiple posts, but not by the same blogger. The host, of course, is not bound by such restrictions, though we will attempt to provide as much geographical and chronological coverage as possible. Carnivals will be limited to posts written since the previous installment. As with most such carnivals, each host has final, absolute, and arbitrary authority with regard to inclusion, exclusion, scope, scale, format and presentation."

"You do not have to be Asian, an historian, or a carny (you do have to be a blogger, at least once); all you have to do is blog about Asian history. Our definition of Asia, for the purposes of this carnival, is pretty much the same as that of the Association for Asian Studies: East Asia, Central Asia, South Asia, North Asia, Southeast Asia, Far East, Middle East, Near East, all regions are welcome. Our definition of history (and of good blogging), for the purposes of this carnival, is pretty much that of the History Carnival."

I look forward to reading some good submissions and I will be doing some active hunting as well in hopes of having a worthwhile carnival.
